Pulled Chicken Sandwich

As I have mentioned Tanmaya is on a health kick and prefers eating mostly grilled chicken and salad so boneless chicken is abundantly available to my disposal :)
So I keep experimenting with it.
One of my friends Divya used to get pulled chicken sandwich for lunch and I wanted to give it a try. So here we go.

  1. Chicken Breast: 2 
  2. Onion: 1 medium finely chopped
  3. Ginger garlic Paste: 2 tsp
  4. Green Chili: 2 slit
  5. Tomato: 1 medium finely chopped
  6. Salt as per taste
  7. Turmeric Powder: 1 tsp
  8. Red chili powder: 1 tsp
  9. Coriander Powder: 1/2 tsp
  10. Chicken curry masala: 1/4 tsp
  11. Vegetable/chicken stock: 1/2 cup
  12. Oil: 2 tsp
  13. Water: 1 cup

In a pressure cooker cook the chicken breasts along with water till 1 whistle.
Let the pressure release automatically.
In a pan heat oil add finely chopped onion and green chili along with a pinch of salt.
Let it cook stirring in between till the onions turn transparent.
Add red chili powder and cook for a noter minute or so.
Add ginger garlic paste, and cook for 2 mins.
Add finely chopped tomato, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt to taste, cover and cook till the tomato is mushy.
Remove the cove and cook the spices for another 2-4 mins till the raw smell of the spices is gone.
In the meanwhile remove the chicken from the cooker and pull it with a fork.
To the masala add the chicken curry masala, pulled chicken and Vegetable/chicken stock.
Cook the pulled chicken for 4-5 mins stirring occasionally.
Stop when all the liquid has dried up but let the chicken remain moist.
It tastes great with naan or rooti.

My main intension was to make pulled chicken sandwich.
So I took 2 slices of bun applied butter and lightly toasted them.
Top it up with a leaf of lettuce, slice of tomato and 4-5 tsp of pulled chicken top it up with the other slice of bread and enjoy!!!!

So do try and let me know how you liked it.
Till then happy blogging
